This book is wonderfully-written, majestically-crafted, and hauntingly beautiful. I loved every moment of it.

Last week, I listened to the audiobook version of this book, which was very good. Then I saw that it was an abridged version so of course I had to hunt down the full story. And here we are. I enjoyed this version more than the abridged version. The abridged version is good, but the whole story is so much more connected in the full version. It makes more sense. You get the gist of things in the abridged story, but this one is definitely more put-together. 

Also, the illustrations are lovely. I love how simplistic they are, yet still magnificent. 

Fantastic, fantastic story. 

I've been on a bit of a Little Prince binge now and watched the newest movie version last night. It is good in the way that the newest Lorax movie was good. It plays off of the original story and expands it. Not bad. Just different. 

Good book, great story.
